Southwest Bison

Southwest inspired meat dish. Could be used as taco/burrito meat, for enchiladas, or served over any whole grain. 

Southwest Bison with Spanish Rice, Refried Beans, and Corn Tortillas

14. oz Bison Ribeye, cubed (lean beef would work too) (Image)
2 c. mushrooms, sliced
1 med. red bell pepper, diced
1 med. yellow onion, chopped (Image)
1 Tbsp garlic, minced (Image)
3-1/2 c. tomatoes, diced
1/2 c. cilantro, hand shredded
1 tsp. garlic salt
1/4. tsp ground chili pepper
1/2 tsp. ground mustard
1 Tbsp. olive oil

In a big wok/skillet heat olive oil on medium. Saute onions, mushrooms, and garlic until onions are translucent. Add bison (or beef), stirring lightly until browned.  Add bell pepper, tomatoes, and spices. Lower heat. Simmer, covered, stirring occasionally, for at least 20 minutes (can be longer, imagine it would be awesome in a crock pot).  Uncover and simmer until liquid consistency is what you like.

Serves at least 8... maybe more.
